Dubrovnik is situated in Southern Dalmatia, the most beautiful part of the Adriatic coast, and is characterized by a typical Mediterranean climate, with mild and wet winters and hot and dry summers.

The winter temperatures seldom drop below the freezing point, but some winds, especially the "Bura", can be uncomfortable.

January & February air temperatures average between lows of 6 deg. and highs of 12 degrees C (42 - 54 F), although freezing is possible. Snow is very unlikely.

The following bar chart for Dubrovnik, Croatia shows the years average weather condition readings covering rain, average maximum daily temperature, and average minimum temperature.

Hi,
Not sure what it costs on the hard in the ACI Marina up river from Dubrovnik - but they do speak good English so an email will get you a quote.
Pretty place - see our blog pictures at Swagmans Sailing Blog
It might also be possible (if you've a cat so can get alongside the riverbank) to edge up past the marina and do a deal to tie up alongside one of the restaurants usually closed out of season.
Good luck
JOHN

there is a new marina near Marmaris Turkey, it is half fishing vessels and half for yachts... you can have the cat on the hard, and have new antifouling arranged before you come back and odd jobs. cheap fights to Tukey all the year.

The Mediterranean is a big place!

The 'Sailing' part of my web site covers many of the more interesting cruise areas, and indicates suitable layup ports in each area.

Jim Baerselman. Google 'jimb sail' to find the site . . .

Yacht marine at Marmaris is about the cheapest in south turkey we think. Good social life if you are staying aboard. 12 month contract for us 11.4m from June this year was 1750 euros including a lift out last month and the lift back in next April. If you go out cruising for more than 1 month they add a month's credit onto the end of your contract (we just added on 1 month, 15 days to our contract goes right through till 9th August 2009 so far.) Dalaman airport is the nearest. An alternative is the island of Leros at Evros marina, lovely little island, flights out to Athens and onwards. However beware of EU regulations for visas and boats for US citizens - they are nearly as bad as us UK citizens trying to sail in the US!!

Just a further thought. A brand new marina at Gocek is due for completion this winter and they seem very keen to attract winter visitors. Unfortunately I have no more detail of it at this point apart from the fact we saw the new pontoons in there in September and the guy in one of the chandlerys was trying to sell us a berth.

We enjoyed staying on the boat for the winter in Vibo Marina, Southern Italy. Price was very reasonable and the small town was nice.
